Abstract

Salvinorin A is the main active chemical component of the Diviner's sage (Salvia divinorum), plant of the sage genus used worldwide to treat a variety of diseases. Salvinorin A is the strongest so far discovered natural psychedelic substance, unique and enigmatic in many aspects. This paper presents a brief overview of the history and biology of the Diviner's sage, biochemistry of salvinorin A and its physiological effects on the body. Salvinorin A is shown as one of perhaps the most important chemical substances of the future, because of its extremely strong influence on the human body and because of its pharmacological properties, which, I don't doubt, will find their place in the application against various diseases of our time, whether on psychological basis or not.
